You should have had Nextstep versions alongside mac os versions from system 6 on. The major OSes from NeXT were: Nextstep 3.3, Openstep 4.0, 4.5, then it was Rhapsody, then Mac OS X Server, then Mac OS X, etc, etc.
Mac os x is a direct descendant of nextstep, many (most?) of the functions are even preceded by NS_ and the os is in many ways just a refinement of ideas originally taken shape in 1987 and 1988.
I just started with the latest OS 10.4 and now I’m using 10.6. I do also have a wonderful vintage Mac – a Macintosh Performa 5200 with OS 8. And even using the OS 8 system today makes me amazed and facinated. I do love every system of the Apple-machinery!

Wow. Less than 50% of your site’s fixed width design goes to the *actual content* here? This is painful. Skipped to the comment section, not bothering to read your content or ads which you obviously want to prioritize.
Well, i’m sorry to read this but it’s an “inspirational” blog (like a photoblog) and a redesign is coming soon (that will be much better).
If you like the topics…stay tuned, you will have a nice surpirse ;)

The interesting thing is the interface hasn’t really fundamentally changed in over 20 years.

I agree, that’s pretty interesting
So System 3.0 actually came out a year before 2.0? Why?
Just fixed it. Thanks!

Mac OS 8.7 is, by far, the most attractive screenshot, and clearly reflects author’s ability to play with screenshots.

Mi commuove vedere tutto questo percorso segnato nella storia dei tempi. Io personalmente sono entrato in questo mondo attivamente dalla versione 6.
Zo ook Apple!
Nostalgia starts from System 7 as for me :)

I can not find the words to express my gratitude to Francesco Mugnai for this beautiful work of conservation. You allow me to see my screen 90s, while I was working on an Apple Classic with the 6.0 system – I remember my first editing software: Aldus Page Maker, my favorite game: shuffle P (ping pong)
Francesco Mugnai, bravo! you brought me back in my first LOVE
